Overview

That fateful September morning started out like any other. The skies were a gorgeous blue, nothing like the gray hell they would appear hours later. Joann Namorato was only working in Downtown Manhattan to help alleviate some of the costs of putting two of her three children through college. Despite the financial ease that working in New York City would provide, she feared that a terrorist bombing like the one in 1993 would occur. However, after consulting with friends and family, she came to the conclusion that a second attack on the same location was highly unlikely.

The Long Road Home is an eyewitness account of the events of September 11, 2001, through the eyes and heart of a woman whose greatest fear was taking place right in front of her. Was it possible that the heart-wrenching lessons of courage she had learned during her painful childhood turned out to be the overwhelming factor in guiding her out of the city that day? Follow us through this woman s incredible life journey and see how the events of 9-11-01 have changed her life and the lives of so many others forever.

    Amazing, graciously written

    A moving story of survival. Courageous and without the explicit details the writer has brought you to the horrors of Sept 11th and beyond. I hope after writing this book that the author finds closure and healing, God does work in ways we can never quite understand. Her belief in him is moving and her reliance on his protection will see her through the tough times. A book worth reading.

    Long Road Home: Memories of September 11th

    a story that brings to light the pain and healing for those who survived. The horror of seeing those towers fall and the courage of one woman whose tormented childhood gave her strength to believe more strongly in a greater being. A book that you finish before you realize, hard to put down and for a first time author I would suggest she continue to write. Her destiny discovered.

    IN A NEW YORK MINUTE............

    So as the song goes the world changed on September 11, 2001 in a New York minute. Family and friends were ripped away from us and for those who witnessed the horror firsthand their tales of survival are as courageous as they are heartwrenching. The author takes us on an emotional journey that leads you to laugh, to cry and most importantly to realize that every waking second we spend on earth truly is a God given gift.

    Heartfelt, Inspirational and Moving

    Although it is difficult to read about September 11th, this book personalizes the tragedy through the eyes and experiences of one woman. A woman who was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time and by the Grace of God, she is still with us. We've learned so many stories of people who are no longer with us as a result of the attacks. This story teaches us how one woman struggled in the aftermath for months to regain and even renew and re-assess her life. Truly a book you can not put down!

    Long Road Home: Memories of September 11th

    The Long Road Home is my compelling autobiography of a woman's struggle to return to her normal life after the collapse of the towers. I relived thoughts of my lonely childhood growing up in Mount Loretto on Staten Island. During extensive therapy I began to write down my thoughts in the form of poetry. Before I knew it the poems became words, paragraphs, chapters and now a book that shows the pain and determination to heal. I always knew I had a special relationship with God. Although I questioned him on September 11th, I now realize there is never a day or time that we have a right to question. Join me on a road that will take you from Ground Zero, in New York to the shores of Ocean City, Maryland where I found the strength to write this book and my return to my home in Staten Island where I once again find the inner peace I had always possessed. Meet the people, who had such an impact on my life and helped me to find my way back from the pain and terror of September 11th. Dedicated to Mark Petrocelli and Brian Cannizzaro, two of my unsung heroes who lost their lives that day. May their families find some comfort in the words.
